kids galore;) | ABBOTSFORD PHOTOGRAPHER

I had a wonderful week working with lots of great kids working their magic in front of the camera.  Two darlings turning one and a bunch of munchkins turning two.  Wowza!

I had two wonderful families come in to celebrate some birthdays and they all did so well I decided to roll with it and rally up the troops to do a round two of Lennon and his buddies, for their 2nd birthday.

Well I might have been a little optimistic on the last one it was very impromptu  with some laughs and a bunch of running around and jumping up in down trying to control toddlers with 3 moms way out numbered We managed to get a good workout and some pics for the books.(not sure they are mantel worthy) however they made me laugh;)

ps if your wondering who the kid who is crying or running away in all the pictures, that would be the photographers son. lol.

Winter Wonderland | ABBOTSFORD PHOTOGRAPHER

It was a beautiful day the sun was shining and snow had freshly fallen.  The day was perfect!  It was a late afternoon wedding at Swan-E-Set golf course out in Maple Ridge.  The ceremony took place at sunset and with a beautiful backdrop the couple said their I dos!  After the ceremony we quickly stepped outside for a few shots of the bride and groom before we lost all daylight.  then moved inside and took advantage of the beautiful venue.

Next up is this little princess.  We started the session with her baptism attire then moved on to a cake smash.  I just love how expressive she was. 

A Family Affair | ABBOTSFORD PHOTOGRAPHER

One of my favorite families decided to get some large family portraits done. I have had the chance to shoot them as individual families before but this was a whole family affair. There were so many to choose from everyone looked great!  You might recognize the littlest bambino from earlier today.  It was his newborn shoot;)

Blog workout | ABBOTSFORD PHOTOGRAPHER

I met so many new babies this winter I want to share with you whats been going on over here:)  This little guy is not so little anymore but I had not had a chance to share these so I thought I would  give the blog a workout  in the next few weeks and post some older shoots that I neglectfully(is that even a word?)  never had the chance to blog:)

Where does the time go! | ABBOTSFORD PHOTOGRAPHER

It seems like yesterday I was holding this little guy in my ares for the first time, doing his first pictures and now almost two years later I am bribing him with all I can to get him to poise for yet another shoot.  I really wanted to get this photo shoot in before bambino #2 makes an appearance before I have to get two smiling faces looking my way.

8th Annual SPCA Galla

Last week was the 8th annual SPCA Galla out at northview golf course.  It was a beautiful evening raising money for the local organization.  I was so thrilled to be a part of such a great cause and had a wonderful time.  Here are a few pictures of the evening. 

One Beautiful Story | ABBOTSFORD PHOTOGRAPHER

It truly has been a crazy year for me and for that I am forever thankful to all my clients new and returning,  however with that being said this one man show has had to let a few things go to the way side. I know it seems that all I am doing if playing catch up but I believe everyone deserves a little blog love so I am posting this birth story.

This beautiful mother and friend had so many great shots that it was truly hard to pick just one.  We spent the afternoon at her parents property where we played around with the fantastic rustic red barn, I got to play a little with lighting and was really actually two days our first attempt went well until the torrential  downpour and had to wrap up early.  Two days later the skies broke and sun came through.

Birth photography is always something I get asked about a lot. But people are always surprised when they hear about it.  It is a session that sometimes doesn’t work out timing wise, but there is something about these pictures that just hit the heart-strings.  The raw emotion is unbeatable.  I think I can say it with confidence but never really could comprehend it until actually going through it myself but the moments in these photographs are rarely captured but are the greatest moments in life.

I love newborn babies and this one is no exception she is a special little angel with big brothers to look out for her.  I love when I get to document such great moments in someone’s life and am so lucky I get to enjoy my job and share it with amazing people:)
